Edinburgh’s Most Haunted House

“The house of horrors belonged to Major Thomas Weir, known as the Wizard of West Bow. Once a pillar of the community, he shocked the city after admitting crimes including … communicating with the dead.”

“When Weir was burned the staff he used to carry was also thrown in to the fire and it wriggled about like a snake.”

“Although no person dared live there, its windows were lit up at night, with weird shapes flitting past the dirty panes and strange music coming from inside.”

“It was presumed to have been destroyed in 1878… but … it was not razed and was in fact incorporated within a newly built chapel – today the Quaker Meeting House.”
